The U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Will Make A Stop In Holbrook And The Petrified Forest Week

If you haven’t been to Washington D.C. to see the Capitol Christmas Tree, you may be in luck. The tree is making a brief stop in Northern Arizona. The Petrified Forest National Park south and east of Holbrook will hold an event to come check out the tree as it makes its way from California to Washington D.C. The tree will be at the Painted Desert Visitor Center parking lot east of Holbrook Tuesday from 9 a.m. until noon. Visitors will see a portion of the tree and will have a chance to sign banners on the sides of the truck. Attendees will also receive ornament making kits. The tree will also make its way down the streets of Holbrook on Monday at 3:30 p.m. This year’s tree is a white fir and it’s coming from the Six Rivers National Forest in Northern California. The “People’s Tree” stands 84-feet tall and was harvested from the Mad River Ranger District Sunday. For more information, on when and where to check out the tree, go to the Petrified Forest National Park’s website. You can also track the tree’s journey by logging onto capitoltreetracker.com.
